Pork and sauerkraut is something we usually make on New Year’s Day. However, when we got our last whole pork loin on sale at Giant Eagle (we stock up when it’s $1.69/lb), we had them cut a few pork loin roasts out of one of the loins we bought. We were meaning to make a roast pork with savory fennel bread pudding, but after actually buying and cutting into the fennel, I realized it smelled like licorice. I can’t stand black licorice, so needed to find another pork recipe in a hurry.
The recipe is simple. Throw a pork loin into a slow cooker with 2 bags of sauerkraut. About an hour before it’s done, throw in a package of garlic knockers. Serve with mashed potatoes.
